Effect of feeding artichoke leaves on the milk production of lactating goats

Effect of feeding artichoke leaves on the milk production of lactating goats

Szaktanacsok ( 3-4): 22-27

The 2.5-3.0-m-high leafy stems of the artichoke have considerable nutritional value. The dwarf goats used in the experiment were of similar age. Their body weight, state of lactation and milk production level were also similar. They received 400 g fodder and 600 g lucerne hay/day per animal. The hay was substituted with artichoke leaves in the experimental group. The experiment lasted 21 days and was preceded by a 10-day-long prefeeding period. The milk production decreased, but only slightly.
